Those of you who are in the Southwest should look into Stardust Building Supply. It's a nonprofit that has 3 thrift stores in the Metro Phoenix area. The organization's goal is pretty great, too- make home renovation affordable and keep building supplies out of our landfills.

This is such a smart and innovative invention. Not sure how people can group this in with chicken hormones or meat flour. Nonetheless, kudos Stuart and Cedar!

@ALL-FOR-IT If you read carefully their website, they still promote smoking the beehive (for cleaning and such) they actually call it "beehive smoking a work of love". I don't believe this is a creation made to spare bees from stress, actually the opposite. And that smoking although NOT ideal at all happens at the pace of Nature, this gadget allows bee keepers to "play" with bee's work: honey. Just because you don't open the beehive it doesn't make it un-intrusive at all. It seems more intrusive to me. Also this for me sounds like if you plastify a chicken's womb so that she lays an already clean egg. Bee's wax comb are an organic creation, their womb. Even just in name of health I wouldn't like to eat this honey (it actually now scares me that I can now buy honey produced this way without knowing!). Among beekepers one of the most cruel thing you can do to a beehive it's to deprive them from food, you should take part of the honey but leave some for them to feed themselves through winter (this is why they make honey in the first place). This invention makes the opposite. Imagine you are stocking up for winter and you keep finding your pantry empty everyday, or imagine you stocked up everything thing stays the same for a long time and one day there are a part that's gone but you know you still have more than plenty to eat. Also, human have proved that they don't know everything about Nature and its intricated complex process. People now know that bees are responsible for the entire world biological system. But what happens to polen and wax from the honeycomb that create in regular beehives in this invention? Can't you see that you're telling bees to work in a way against they nature? How does this affects polinization? Etc, etc. If this is such a good invention they should at least test it out for 20 years, before mass-produce it. (Sorry for the long text!)

I totally agree with Elina, as large as the U.S. is not to mention our neighbors to the North of us , and to the South of us; there's a lifetime of travel to be done! Why is there this need to travel outside our own country when we have such a diversity in our own country?

Post image for One Mind-Blowing Way to Conserve Water

If you’re paying attention to current events, then you’ll know that California is currently undergoing one of its worst droughts in history. Read more »

Lila alfalfa uses far more water than the almond and most of it gets shipped overseas to feed cattle. At least almonds are feeding us and making a profit.
Alison -Apr 14, 2015, 9:15PM
Lila Did you know that every year California is required to release hundreds of thousands of acre feet it's reserves and groundwater through its delta to help save in endangered species of fish? 51% California's water supply to be exact. There also is no proof that the sacrifice of water is helping this endangered fish. Of the remaining 49% of water available California farmers use 80% of that. They use this water to grow much of our nation's food supply and the world too. This ensures that when you go to your local whole foods that you will be able to find your spinach, your asparagus, artichokes, almonds, pistachios, fruit, citrus, kale lettuce, garlic, strawberries, berries, cherries, blueberries and all of the other super foods that you enjoy. Thank You for bringing this post and this issue of California's drought on the radar. Best way to be prepared for a drought is to conserve and reserve water. Food Grows Where Water Flows!

Lauren -Apr 07, 2015, 7:31PM
I set a reminder for when to move my car AND where it's parked! I also find that moving it early in the morning is easier than night time because people who drive to work vacate their spots. NYC also has a twitter account and calendar announcing the holidays for alternate side parking that are incredibly useful time-savers on certain days.

My horoscope has been saying the same thing over and over this past couple of weeks. Maybe it's a signal or nudge that I'm not following through with this advice and I should start now! Good to think about... xo
Alexandra -Apr 06, 2015, 11:19AM
Lovely job and explanation - although it does make this Aries quite nervous. I'll be careful! Warm Regards, Alexandra
